If you've ever mixed paints with a kid, or as a kid, you know how quickly you get to black? The smell of this flower made me think of that. Bear with me for a second. Because if I just said, "it smells weird," you might get the wrong idea.
Let's step back.
This herb looks exactly like the photo on the MedMama menu. Exquisite. Light green with orange streaks, the colors are muted and ill-defined under the frosty white cloud forest of trichomes. Why bother taking a pic? I couldn't do better if I knew how to work my camera.
Papaya. Pineapple. As I grind it up, the tropical flavors emerge. The flavor is so intense that it seems a black smudge at full volume! Luckily, a vaporizer dissects the flavors one by one as the heat goes up. Banana. The most banana-like banana ever. This is textbook cannabis, literally. It writes the book on flavor, 5 degrees Celsius at a time. More specifically, this has to be the most textbook Purple Punch I am likely to see, unless I go to some big cannabis festival in the sky.
This bud needs time to open up. When it does, the vapor/smoke will be as glorious as its picture. It is big...HUGE...full of taste RIGHT NOW...but I feel like it's got somewhere to go and that somewhere is up.
I have not had Purple Punch this good since I first had it, in 2019.
